Hey I did an interview about the new itch.io app: https://itch.io/blog/48365/meet-the-new-and-improved-itch-app
read it maybe!
@itchio WHoa! I just tooted this.
@viTekiM you win this one mike!
@itchio Yes! Front page feature all my games from now on.
(That's how this works right?)
@itchio that on linux too?
@brainblasted I'm not planning on it. I've been following the various "app container" formats, and I just don't have the resources to support them right now. The app ships with its own updater, its own sandboxing, it's sorta hard to retrofit into what flatpak/snap/appimage expect. ^amos
@brainblasted I'm sure this isn't the last time this will get asked, tbf. And since everything is open-source, there's nothing preventing people from making their own builds, packaged however they want. They just won't be officially supported, because we need to know that we're able to push updates swiftly to all platforms we support. ^amos
@brainblasted you'll probably want to look at:
Congrats to all the devs and kudos for being on mastodon
@itchio Will the old app update itself to this eventually?
@itchio k, will do. Looks great!
@itchio do I need to uninstall games too? Or will it find previous installed stuff?
@joshg it is designed to import game installs performed on previous versions of the app. They may take a little while to show up.
@itchio awesome, thanks!
